Every Green ticket is already a joke candidacy.

Who is Jill Stein? Not exactly a well known person. I guess she is best known for losing elections by wide margins in MA.
Time to start guessing, will she beat Nadar's lowest total of 463,000 votes in 2004?

I think she will...Enough disenfranchised liberals will unite behind the Green and Justice parties.

I doubt she will.

Only political wonks like us have ever heard of her.

Cobb and McKinney sucked at getting votes, and couldn't even get half of Nader's low as an Independent, as the Green brand label really took a (fair or unfair) beating after the 2000 election.

If that's not enough to prevent her from a decent finish, I will be voting for her, so a horrendous finish in the election is all but guaranteed.

She is relatively well known here in MA because she was in the Governor's debate with Baker, Patrick, and Cahill. It's a hell of a lot easier for independents to get into debates on a more localized level. I could see Stein get 1% here in Mass. But that's the best she'll do.

Nobody really cares about the Greens unless Nader is the nominee. Plus, the Greens have a lot baggage as Tom mentioned from the 2000 election. Even though most of Nader's NH support was from registered Republicans and most voters nationwide voters were first time voters and would probably not have voted had Nader not ran.
